Halloween: The History of America’s Darkest Holiday
Wonderfully well-written, outrageous, and provocative." — Booklist."Entertaining … and scholarly … Like a bag of Halloween candy, the book is a lot of fun." — Boston Globe."Fans of cultural history will devour each chapter … like a toothsome treat." — Christian Science Monitor.Acclaimed cultural critic David J. Skal explores one of America's most perplexingly popular holidays in this original mix of personal anecdotes and social analysis. Skal traces Halloween's evolution from its dark Celtic history and quaint, small-scale celebrations to its emergence as mammoth seasonal marketing event.Skal takes readers on a cross-country survey that covers remarkably divergent perspectives, from the merchants who welcome a money-making opportunity that's second only to Christmas to fundamentalists who decry Halloween a form of blasphemy and practicing witches who embrace it as a holy day. He also profiles individuals who revel in this once-a-year occasion to participate in elaborate fantasies. Their narratives, combined with the author's cultural analysis, offer a revealing look at an intriguing aspect of our national psyche.
Halloween stars Jamie Lee Curtis (A Fish Called Wanda, True Lies) in her debut role. Anyone who's ever watched a horror film in the last 35 years knows the story of Michael Myers, who as a child, butchered his sister with a kitchen knife. Committed to a mental institution and watched over by Dr. Loomis (Donald Pleasance, Halloween II, IV & V, Fantastic Voyage), he engineers his escape 15 years later, returning to his hometown of Haddonfield, Illinois on Halloween night to terrorize anyone who gets in his way, including babysitter Laurie Strode (Curtis). Co-starring P.J. Soles (Carrie, Stripes, Rock n Roll High School), Kyle Richards (The Watcher in the Woods, Eaten Alive), Nancy Loomis (Carpenter s Assault On Precinct 13, The Fog), Charles Cyphers (Escape From New York, The Fog) and Brian Andrews (The Great Santini, Three O Clock High), Halloween also cemented the careers of many behind the camera including Carpenter, Cundey, producer Debra Hill and film editor/production designer Tommy Lee Wallace (Halloween III: Season of the Witch, It).

ikiki Skull Squeaky Shoes for Toddlers w/Adjustable Squeaker, Black Girl or Boy Shoes (Size 10, Captain Zuga)
Captain Zuga is our not so fearsome former pirate who still loves sailing the seven the seas but hunts for adventure instead of treasure. He loves maps, history, and discovering new places to explore and sail. There is no sea creature he doesn't want to learn more about and no island he doesn't want to investigate; he is always up for adventure. Pirates aren't all swords and swashbuckling, Captain Zuga also loves to sing jolly pirate tunes and learn about the stars he uses for navigation. Astronomy and the arts aren't just for land dwellers, you know. While no longer racketeering, Captain Zuga still enjoys creating a racket by squeaking with delight every time a child takes a step in his shoes. Virtually all kid shoes are just adult shoes that were shrunk down to be smaller. But kids' feet are different than adult feet, so the shoes should be different too. That's why we started from the ground up to re-imagine kid shoes. We've searched long and hard to find the best materials for a breathable, comfortable, and fun shoe for kids that will help them learn to walk. Squeaky shoes have been recommended by physical therapists and pediatricians to help toddlers learn to walk and reinforce good walking habits. That makes them perfect for crawlers learning to walk, toddlers learning to t...
Best HALLOWEEN III: Season of the Witch Opening Day Film Ad 1982 L.A. Newspaper LOS ANGELES TIMES, October 22, 1982
LOS ANGELES TIMES, October 22, 1982 * Best "First Blood" & Halloween III" advertisements * Grand Opening Day movie premieres * Action & Science fiction horror films A terrific issue on the premiere of the motion picture hits "First Blood" & "Halloween III: Season of the Witch" and perhaps no better issue could be found than this, the leading newspaper from the home of the entertainment industry - the Hollywood area's prime publication. Note: Where else might one find authentic, poster-size ads for Opening Day showings, in the most desirable Hollywood-area newspaper - as we were lucky enough to obtain this (and others) indirectly from the Los Angeles Times' own collection? It simply doesn't get any better! In over 40 years of collecting, we have yet to see such unique & dramatic coverage with truly top-shelf, eye-catching displayability (see images). The front page of section VI has a review of the "First Blood" film headed: "Life After Vietnam" And perhaps more significant is the terrific, full page poster-like advertisement for the film printed on it's opening day. (see). Page 8 has a 16 x 10 inch opening day advertisement for the horror film "Halloween III: Season of the Witch" A quite rare issue as it would not have been saved since it contains no historically significant cont...
